Hi, I’m Rachel Doherty, the founder of Tweens2teen
If you live or work with young people, then you’ll find plenty of great resources here to give you a hand.
The world is changing so quickly that the old ways of doing things don’t always work. We need to be savvy, giving kids the space to develop new ways of thinking and clever ways of doing life as they journey towards the grown up version of themselves.
Thanks for stopping by!
In 2017 I’m wanting to live life bigger. There’s lots of ideas buzzing round my head for Tweens2teen that I can’t wait to show you.
But in the meantime, I’m also working on being a better mother, a healthier one and a happier one.
If you find yourself trudging through most days, then join me on this journey of a bigger and better way of doing life with kids.
If you work with young people, then keeping your skills and knowledge up to date is a no brainer. Supervision is about unpacking your practice, building on strengths and poking holes in your weaknesses.
There’s an art to raising great teenagers, so if you’re feeling stuck, reach out for some help. My coaching is all about reviewing systems, strategies and routines to bring some harmony to your home.
